RUCST Futsal team play their second competative gamesRotherham United A vs Sheffield Wednesday A
Rotherham started slow after not the best preparation in getting lost in the centre of Leeds after taking a wrong turn and only having 10 minutes to warm up. This showed in the first half with some sloppy play. However after getting into the flow of the game and getting to grips with Sheffield Wednesday’s rotations and cleaver interchanging of positions to penetrate into the heart of Rotherham’s defensive shape. Sheffield Wednesday couldn’t turn possession into goals, in-fact it was Rotherham who grabbed the first goal with a long range effort.
Sheffield got back into the game and were leading 3-2 at half time. Rotherham never gave in a continued to hit Sheffield Wednesday on the counter and with some cleaver quick play started to add goal after goal and found daylight between themselves and Sheffield Wednesday to win the game 6-3 with some great goals and play from both teams.
Rotherham United B vs Accrington Stanley B
The game started very cagy and with both teams not really looking to penetrate with the fear of losing possession and the other team starting a counter attack. Rotherham United started well, keeping a good defensive shape and making Accrington resort to long range efforts, this was a common theme throughout the game for both sides. The first half ended 0-0 with both teams having good efforts to open the scoring.
Rotherham broke the deadlock in the second half with a goal from Kasey Scott which looked to be the winner until Rotherham lost their concentration with 5 seconds of play remaining and Accrington levelled after sloppy defending from Rotherham and switching off.
Overall a draw was a fair reflection of the game; both teams can take a lot out of the game after losing their 1st games.
